I love sweet potatoes and peanut sauce, so of course I loved this. My boyfriend, however, is not really a fan of sweet potatoes, but since I made this once, he has requested it several times and absolutely loves it. I recommend adding some rice to it (we used jasmine rice) to make it a complete meal. This time I used chicken, too, which made it perfect. Also don't forget the cilantro, it adds a nice flavor to it. In addition to the allspice, I also sprinkled a little nutmeg in. This is one of our favorite meals now!
Sweet Potato-Peanut Bisque
From EatingWell: September/October 2009
This satisfying vegetarian, sweet potato soup is inspired by the flavors of West African peanut soup. We like the added zip of hot green chiles, but they can sometimes be very spicy. It’s best to take a small bite first and add them to taste. Try chopped peanuts and scallions for a different garnish. Serve with a mixed green salad with vinaigrette.

I'm really pleased with this recipe. You can't really taste the sweet potatoes, but the peanut butter is very prominent. I thought it tasted delicious. Two changes I made: I used 2 fresh green chilies (as opposed to the can), and I baked the sweet potatoes in my oven instead of microwaving them. It turned out really well, and I will definitely make it again.
Tried this for the family thinking it would be a good warming soup. No one really liked it. I tolerated it, but wouldn't make it again. I added more spice to see if it would help, but it just wasn't good.
I used the tomato juice for this instead of the tomato vegetable blend. I thought it would taste wonnnnderful, but boy was I wrong. Gross! I will not be making this again. You can't taste the sweet potatoes, and the tomato juice is way too prominent of a flavor. :(:(:(
